Think back to your earliest memories of Christmas.
When you think of the holiday season, do you think of toasty sips of hot cocoa while curled up in front of the television? Perhaps being carried by strong arms to decorate the very top of the Christmas tree? Maybe the coziness of opening carefully wrapped presents whilst in your pajamas?
Bring out your inner child and relive your earliest holiday memories with one bite from Marks & Spencer’s Christmas Food line. Established in 1884, Marks & Spencer (M&S) is one of the UK’s leading retailers with over 137 years of British heritage and takes pride in its specialties and responsibly sourced products.

Here, we detail a few of our favorites from the thoughtfully crafted M&S Christmas Food line, to make every moment memorable and magical.
Christmas Tortilla Star (P225)
Perfect for any holiday party, the Christmas Tortilla Star serves up to seven people! As a colorful mix of lightly salted corn, beetroot and spinach tortilla chips, guests will surely be drawn to the snack spread. Pair it with a homemade or store-bought M&S dip and you’ll have people munching the entire evening.
The Original Very Merry Munch (P1,295)
The Original Very Merry Munch proves to be versatile, whether for gifting to your foodie friends or including as last-minute pica-pica. Something both adults and children will enjoy, the Original Very Merry Munch is a tasty selection of chocolate-coated salted peanuts, chocolate-coated popcorn, salted and dark chocolate-coated pretzels, sugar-coated milk chocolate and peanuts, and salted caramel flavored almonds that will be a sure hit during the holidays.
Red Mulled Wine (P595)
It's definitely not a party without the booze (for adults only, of course)! Christmas cocktails might just be the best companion when you’re trying to get through a long night. Cater to your loved ones who enjoy a fun drink with the M&S Red Mulled Wine—expertly blended and great for gifting or serving on the spot! This rich and fruity red wine drink is flavored with spices that prove to be magical when served warm and with a slice of orange.
If your guests aren’t fond of red wine, Marks & Spencer also has a range of alcoholic beverages that would be thrilling to mix yourself, making your bartending dreams come to life. Choose from the Southworld Christmas Ale, a rich dark winter ale brewed with English Malts and hops, the Winter Spiced Porter, a fruity sparkling white wine mixed with clementine and cranberry juice, and more!
Just a friendly tip, spiked eggnog would be perfect for inciting holiday cheer in a room full of party-goers.
Four in a Row (P1,495)
The M&S Four in a Row is a chocolate disc-filled game—ideal for family fun during Christmas time. Included in the box is a four-in-a-row cardboard box and 44 individually wrapped Swiss milk and dark chocolates made with ground hazelnuts. Gather your family members or friends around, and start playing! Once you’ve devoured the chocolate, you can refill the discs and replay the game as many times as you like!
Hot Chocolate Light Up House (P795)
Is it really Christmas if you don’t have the classic staple—hot chocolate—at least five times during the season? The M&S Hot Chocolate Light Up House works both to bring children cheer and to decorate your home as a charming trinket. Talk about dual purpose! The rich and silky hot chocolate is housed inside a festive light-up lantern, making days merry and, of course, bright. Simply add hot milk to the hot chocolate, stir the mixture, then enjoy. For an indulgent touch, keep your marshmallows and whipped cream nearby.
